I Got My New Kindle!



Hello, everybody!

So, last week I bought this used Kindle Keyboard on eBay for a really decent price, in order to start checking out some of the ebooks (indie and not indie) that've caught my eye on Amazon! I'm really looking to support my fellow writers and hoping to become a part of this large community of people who have had their ebooks published, while I currently work on my first novel, REAPERS.


Currently I'm reading a book called Black House by Stephen King & Peter Straub. I love everything Stephen King does, and this book has been sitting on my shelf unread for quite some time (I got it as a gift a long while ago) so I decided to read it while I waited for my Kindle. I'm about 2/3 of the way through it, and plan to post a review for it when I'm done.

I thought I'd also share the list of ebooks that I have planned to read so far, most likely in this order:


  1. Dark Passage by Griffin Hayes
  2. The Mariner by Ade Grant
  3. The Guardian of Threshold by A.A. Volts
  4. Grace Lost by M. Lauryl Lewis
  5. Riser by Becca C. Smith
  6. World of Shell and Bone by Adriana Ryan
  7. In the Tall Grass by Stephen King & Joe Hill
  8. God Attacks! by J.R. Keifer
  9. In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters
  10. What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang

I think ten is a good start for now. I believe some toward the bottom have yet to actually be released and, if by the time I get to them they're still not released, I'll read something else and come back to them.

I will be posting reviews for every one of these books - and all other books I might read - as soon as I finish each one. The reviews for each book, while being posted on this blog, will also be posted on the books' Amazon and Goodreads pages. 


My question for anyone that may read this list - based on what you might be able to tell I enjoy (horror, fantasy, suspense, mystery, thriller), do you have any suggestions for authors, or specific books, that you think I should check out? I'd greatly appreciate any input.

Thanks for reading!

-Chris

Black House is a fine SK book. Much better than The Talisman in my opinion. Enjoy :)

I'd definitely agree with that at this point. I'm seriously loving everything about Black House so far. I'd finish it in one sitting if I didn't have to go to class, sleep, write, etc.

Stumbled upon this blog post while searching out a used Kindle for a friend. I hit on the top of the archive and started scrolling down looking for the entry on the used Kindle, when I saw your post on Dark Passage (an e-book I have also read).

I then saw your King / Straub reference and The Mariner (which is also on my Kindle waiting for me to start reading it). We seem to have a very similar taste in books.

So, I scroll down to your used Kindle page, and see you are looking for some suggestions. May I suggest the following books for your consideration.

Forsaken, by Andrew Van Wey
A Hollow Dream of Summer's End, by Andrew Van Wey
Seed, by Ania Ahlborn.

Each of these (and more) can be found (linked) on my Kindle Reading List (LINK if you are intrested).

I'm looking forward to seeing Reapers show up on Amazon!

Best of luck to you!
